It's no surprise that this three-bedroom, semi-detached house went for more than $50,000 above asking on multiple bids. It was listed at an exceptionally affordable price considering that it has been entirely renovated, and that High Park and the Keele subway station are only a short walk away.
The main-floor living room has many architecturally trendy elements, including sleek built-in shelving on the side of the fireplace, exposed brick flourishes and designer wall colours. French doors lead to a sunroom at the front, which was built in the space of the original porch and features ceramic floors.
The eat-in kitchen is also aggressively modern, with polished wood cabinetry. It opens out to the deck and perennial garden in the backyard, part of the 88-foot-deep property.
The master bedroom offers a lot of breathing space and natural light, with its cathedral ceiling and bay window.
The nicely finished basement includes a recreation room and den with numerous pot lights as well as a wet bar and three-piece bathroom, one of two in the home. The basement also provides access to the back.
The electrical system has been upgraded to 200 amps, and there's lane parking for one car.
